A NASA program has opened opportunities for accredited educational institutions and nonprofit organizations to design, build and operate nanosatellites and flight hardware.
NASA said Friday it seeks partners for the next round of its CubeSat Launch Initiative to help facilitate the agency’s research programs in the areas of science, exploration, technology and education.
Interested parties can submit proposals through Nov. 22 and NASA will consider selected experiments as potential auxiliary payloads on agency space missions in 2017, the space agency noted.
The agency deploys CubeSats to support missions on planetary exploration, Earth observation and fundamental Earth and space science.
CSLI was established to create opportunities for small satellite payloads flown as auxiliary payloads on rockets planned for upcoming launches.
